Aspros, 28 May 2017Typical Chinese stuff. Last year's exterior, but this year's Chip. A cheap LCD panel, though w... moreTypical UNREASONABLE haters, I see...
-) In 2017, u r still bringing up "A copied B design"? Stupid.
In smartphone business nowadays, since 99.9 percent smartphones are in the form of full touchscreen candybar, similar design, or design based on rival's brand is normal. Even those brand whom u said got their designed copied, also did the same thing, so what u r trying to saying here could be stated in one sentence: FANBOY'S HYPOCRISY.
-) AFAIK, Xiaomi's "Mi" sub-brand NEVER use cheap LCD panel. Since Mi 4, they use JDI / Sharp-made LCD panel which is BY NO MEANS NOT CHEAP. AMOLED panel is expensive & short-lived, why bother buying something which could tarnished their brand reputation?
Whatever they do, if it's CHINESE company, u'll justify any excuse to SLANDER them even if it is childish like this one "IPS LCD vs. AMOLED" BS.
-) Your reasonning why they keep IR but not SD card is PURE BULLSHIT HATERS' OPINION.
Xiaomi is, like Hisense, also make home appliance, like TV, AC, etc, which use IR for remote controlling. Adding IR blaster into their smartphone is one of the indirect advertisement to the user which say "we also made home appliances like LG & Samsung, so we would be happy if u could buy them too".
For SD card slot inavailability, Xiaomi, since Mi2 have stated that they WOULD NOT add SD card slot into their main "Mi" subbrand (Mi 4s & Mi Max was exception since both of them are not the main "Mi" subbrand, aka "variant" series, since the main "Mi" at that time are Mi4 & Mi5). The reason for the SD card slot inavailability is the same with Google's & Apple's, that is, ALL of them wants user to use cloud more, which in turn, generate more money for the company from the monthly subscription (I dunno if Xiaomi do have paid cloud service like Google or Apple, though).
FYI, 3.5mm jack inavailability hinted to be a "test the water" action by Xiaomi. IF the reaction was positive, they will continue with USB type-C from now on (that is, if they want to make their flagship more waterproof), but if the reaction was negative, I believe they will add 3.5mm jack again for the next flagship, since losing potential buyers as well as loyal customers are the least Xiaomi would hope.
-) "It favors speakers overs headsets in 2017" is the DUMBEST statement EVER said by HATERS.
BETTER sounding speaker with good clarity & loud sound is ALWAYS what critics' pointed out when reviewed EVERY smartphone. A good speaker means they equipped the phone with the best available speaker for that price, added with a good DAC will make the phone to be one of the budget audiophile's most wanted gadget.
For me, as long as I got a converter to use my fav headphone/earphone with 3.5mm jack, I could live with Mi6.
-) "Mi 5 was successful because Samsung don't change the exterior" is the #2 DUMBEST statement FANBOY could muster.
Mi5 success was NEVER caused by only ONE VARIABLE. Its small screen, its small form factor, its lightweight, its specs, & its price tag is ONLY several points of MANY reasons why people buy Mi5.
"xiaomi and the rest of the big bezel beasts are now absolete" is ANOTHER IDIOTIC HATERS' statement. You said Mi6 bezels are wide/big? OMG, did u have MISSING SCREWS on ur brain? I'll tell u this, NOT EVERYONE LIKES CURVED SCREEN, OR REALLY THIN BEZELS, cuz thin bezels made the phone HARD to USE as I"ll ALWAYS accidentally touch the edge screen which in turn open unneeded apps.
-) "the phone now costs 650$ in Europe" is the #3 IDIOTIC STATEMENT I have read this week.
FIRST, DON'T BUY MOST CHINESE PHONE IF U'R FROM EUROPE. Lack of Band 20 is "indirect" WARNING that XIAOMI'S PHONES NEVER INTENDED TO BE SOLD TO EUROPE.
SECOND, BUY XIAOMI'S PHONE FROM ALI EXPRESS, NOT EUROPE WAREHOUSE, because like u said, it'll make u pay almost double the "recommended" price of Mi6.
THIRD, DON'T BUY BEFORE THREE MONTHS AFTER DATE OF RELEASE.
Why? because u'll have to pay 650$ like u said, TROLL.
Maybe next year, you should TRY HARDER to try SLANDER CHINESE brand smartphone while keeping LOW PROFILE of your DIE-HARD SAMSUNG FANBOYISM?
EVERYONE who read ur opinion could tell in first try, u know?
Im using mi5 for now, but mi6 dosnt look right to upgrade my phone. I'll just wait for something major like other brand do
Aspros, 28 May 2017Typical Chinese stuff. Last year's exterior, but this year's Chip. A cheap LCD panel, though w... more1 Europe and US isn't even their target market. Why should they care? Occasionally they may do like with note 2 global edition . Ind Indo China region it's gonna cost around 30k (in case Xiaomi care for India) which is about half of what s8 costs here.
2 bezelless is overrated. Enjoy if it falls without case. Nonetheless pretty good phone s8 is
3 I'm against removal of 3.5 mm jack but I don't think everyone is gonna complain since it costs half and has awesome battery life unlike courage stuff other company is doing
Can someone help me please i bought a new xperia x and tiny lines on display are visible on close inspection is it normal for 5 inch fullhd lcd display
Fdean, 28 May 2017Check jerryrig youtube mi6, he could not break the mi6. Just saw it. Pretty good build!
Typical Chinese stuff. Last year's exterior, but this year's Chip. A cheap LCD panel, though wise enough to keep it on 1080p. IR because some ppl need it, but not SD card and 3.5mm jack that everybody needs it. They can afford gorilla Glass 5, yet they cant afford an AMOLED screen, where even an 80$ Lumia can. It favors speakers overs headsets in 2017, just because Apple wanted to maximize their profits and force everyone buy their new expensive headsets. Well Apple makes money from this, but Xiaomi will surely lose them! That's what happens when you blindly copy others. Mi 5 was successful because Samsung don't change the exterior, so the 2015 S6 body, xiaomi copied was relevant in 2016, but this year, is the mini bezel year, both Samsung and LG have mini bezels and soon Apple too, so xiaomi and the rest of the big bezel beasts are now absolete. And in their quest to blindly copy Apple and introduce even the smaller useless detail, the phone now costs 650$ in Europe, where the S7, they were trying to reproduce, sells at 450$ and it has an AMOLED screen, a camera able to shoot at night time, SD card slot, waterproofness and 3.5 jack. Even the S8 is now down to 650$ which ads a night selfie, bigger screen on the same body, the new design that make it stand out and still holds the SD card and even includes a 100$ headset!
Maybe next year xiaomi, when you copy the S8 and chances are the S9 will have the same design, you will remain relevant...
Of course xiaomi gives hi performance, because it has smaller resolution. Noticed this when you were playing game on a pc, higher resolution made your game frame rate lower.
Lola, 27 May 2017If you want small screen and new soc mi6 for you and if you want bigger screen and last year s... more...the day that 5.15 inches (basically a phablet by the standards of any other era) is called a small screen.
BTW I had called it back in 2010 (w iPad's release), "that's the natural progression, people would love the tablets and forget the phones".
Only twist is that we're still calling them phones, but increasingly they have search mini tablet size (basically a pocketable tablet), phone calls is a strong minority of their function, thumb use has almost gone the way of the dodo (the primary way to control cordless phones since the 1980s) and they're increasingly not pocketable (another attribute of " cordless phones").
The age of the tablet is here. Basically why traditional tablets are dying. Mini tablets have eaten their lunch.
AnonD-368020, 27 May 2017Now I want to ask only one question : if one plus 3T and Mi6 are at same price which one shoul... moreIf you want small screen and new soc mi6 for you and if you want bigger screen and last year soc 3t for you
AnonD-632062, 27 May 2017It's a pretty good smartphone. The main deal-breakers are the lack of the 3.5 mm headphone jac... moreI don't know why, but I always look for your comment Mr. Jedi. Feel weird XD
well,514$ price,480$+34$ shipping in EU warehouse,so no customs fees no VAT,not exactly cheap by any standards,possibly best bang for your buck right now..one+5 comes this sommer but will be way over 500$ surely..but it looks great,killer performance and finally decent camera..only a slight problem finding
AnonD-664474, 27 May 2017XZ Premium has 4K HDR display, please don't make me laugh of the statement that 1080p looks be... moreAll lies generated by the mind of a fanboy.
Sony's 4k is 1080p in everything bad photos/movie, so yes you get lower PPI in most of everything (given the bigger screen).
XZP's camera is universally hated and easily the worst this year 'round. Just compare the samples with Xiaomi's. You have eyes, don't you?
You can put soft buttons on Xiaomi you know. But who wants that when you already have hard buttons? It basically has as big as XZP's screen despite being smaller because a lot of XZP's useful areas is wasted by soft buttons. Soft buttons were meant to eliminate the chin, Sony understood their purpose completely wrong.
Fingerprint placement if much better on the front because you don't need to handle the phone when on a table. It's basically half of the uses of the fingerprint scanner. Being able to launch a phone without taking it in your hand. It's revolutionary once you use it and can't do without it. Of course you wouldn't know that because you probably only used a Sony in your life and they never did fingertip right. Fingertip on Sonys is cumbersome at best.
Also worse battery (despite the much bigger body, how did they manage to do that, I'm still wondering)
Less ram, meaning less future proof and far slower (when yo disable MIUI's stringent ram management).
Lastly Sony gives up after two years on their devices. 3 is the most I've ever seen. Xiaomi keeps them upgraded for 4 years minimum.
The only that XZP sights is the front facing speakers. Still they're tiny, tinny and bad. Phone speakers would always be a bad idea. Now a good idea to have your phone build around them.
